Historical Association – New Branch Program released

GarveyAs we await the start of the new academic year, we are drawing up a number of plans for our extracurricular activities for the year ahead. Next month, a number of events will take place at FCH for Black History Month, including talks by Bonnie Greer and Gary Younge. We are also putting together a list of events for the Showcasing History series, which are designed to get staff and students engaging with historical issues outside the classroom (more on these to follow on our blog soon).

Before all this however, the Gloucestershire branch of the Historical Association has just published its program for the coming year [download PDF]. A number of exciting talks by noted academics and scholars are in stock on topics including the Indian Ocean Slave Trade, Marcus Garvey, the battles of Agincourt and Gallipoli, Henry III, the Armenian Genocide, and American Civil War and others. See the attached program for more information.

Indian Ocean Slave TradeDue to our relationship with the HA, our students can attend talks for free, but they are also encouraged to join the HA and support the organization. The talks are normally held in the Teaching Block of Park Campus in Cheltenham. The first HA talk of the new year will be held on Monday 21st September at 8.15 at Park Campus. For more information, visit the HA website. You can also keep up to date with events by joining our Facebook group.
